Earlier this offseason a report surfaced saying the 49ers had received a trade offer for Jimmy Garoppolo. Per GM John Lynch, the report isn't true.

Lynch revealed on Monday that the 49ers haven't received a single trade offer for Jimmy Garoppolo. Not one.

Is it time to panic in San Francisco? Probably. Few teams want Garoppolo. Even fewer do if when he's not 100-percent healthy.

It appears the Niners are going to keep Garoppolo, for the time being, but not because they want to.

Jimmy Garoppolo's trade value is at an all-time low. It's highly likely he's still on the 49ers' roster when the 2022 season begins. Fans aren't exactly thrilled:

"Translation… we got horrible low ball offers and we overplayed our hand awaiting at least what Wentz got," one fan said.

"Looks like he is most definitely starting next season," another wrote.

John Lynch appears to be happy about the fact Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance and Nate Sudfield could all be 49ers this upcoming season.

“I think we’re fortunate that we have 3 quarterbacks we believe in Trey, Jimmy & Nate,” Lynch said on Monday, via Matt Barrows of The Athletic. “And, you know, some people are looking for one. So I think that’s a position of strength.”

The Niners are in a bit of a mess right now. They have a few months to get this sorted out before the 2022 season starts.
